I've been playing with the 'preview' half-meters of the fabrics from my new fabric line, 'Georgia Lou'. . . & I've been trying to be very careful of how I use them. . . so I decided to make a bunch (324 to be exact) of half-square triangles. . . (yep, I know, I seem to be on a half-square triangle kick. . .)
Here's some that make me smile. . .
. . . Don't they (Lecien) do amazing detail work?
For this line - I wanted the fabrics to have the look like they have been around for awhile. . . like they've been washed & hung out in the sun & the fresh air to dry many times over. . . & like they've been well used & loved over years. . . & I'm quite happy with the results. . . (I tell you more about that process soon!)
As I work with the fabrics. . . I find that although it is my line & I have seen it all the way through. . . when I start to create & work with it. . . there are many, many moments of bliss, when I just can't help but fall in love with them all over again. . .
Then. . . there is the caring detail that a wonderful artist at Lecien did for me. Because this line is named for my Mom. . . & pansies were one of her favorite flowers . . . with a couple of the prints that I had, I sent in some photos of pansies & asked if a couple of flowers could be changed into pansies. So,. . . every once in a while I get this . . .
. . . & I can't help but know how incredible a privilege it is to get to do what I do, & to work with a company that does things with such grace & such an amazing caring touch.
Earlier this week, I got word that my bolts of my new fabrics were on their way to me . . . I've been tracking them. . . & know that they arrived in LA & were in customs for a couple of days. Then I checked this morning & it said they had left the customs 'inner office'. . . (hmmm. . . what does that mean?!?) . . . so hopefully they are on their way!
. . . I can hardly wait!
